Dominican Republic: Initiative to transform spaces proposes urban improvement in the country

Do you have an idea of ​​how to change the environment in the urban spaces of the city, the neighborhood, or terms of work or business?

For those interested in contributing to citizen urban planning and the improvement of public and private services, such as with the presentation of an idea or proposal that allows allocating space for parking in an office, the Acceleration Laboratory of the United Nations Program for Development (UNDP) and the National Business Support Network for Environmental Protection (ECORED) presented an initiative aligned with the 2030 SDGs (Millennium Development Goals) that facilitates participation in an open competition from December 15, 2020, to this 26 of February.

The idea is that the interested parties, landscapers, engineers, architects, designers, urban artists, and the general public present innovative proposals that guarantee a safe return to adapt them to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic through the initiative “Espacios del Future.” The winners of each of the industry’s four categories will be awarded RD $ 250,000 each, tax-free, María Alicia Urbaneja, executive director of ECORED, explained in an interview Listín Diario; and Nathaly Uribe, in charge of sustainability at ECORED.

The project is supported by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) / ​​WHO (World Health Organization), UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), and other private and academic actors.
